Character actor, George Macready, was born George Peabody Macready Jr. on Aug 29, 1899 in Providence, RI. Macready died at the age of 73 on Jul 2, 1973 in Los Angeles, CA .
George Macready was noted as one of America's most distinctive villains -- a blond, blue-eyed death's head of a man with an aristocratic sneer on the upper lip. Macready created a whole range of polished, distinguished nasties and scoundrels, nearly all with a civilized veneer (1946, Gilda, 1964, Dead Ringer). He died from emphysema just after retirement.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
HONORS and AWARDS:.
Younger Miles: What did you say about Indians?
Tip Henry: I don't savvy the Indian part. Did you know Danning from someplace else?
Younger Miles: [Miles picks up a pair of spurs from the table and slashes Henry across the face] That'll teach you not to walk out on me, you yellow back!
Christopher Todd: This stuff you unearthed, Colonel Casey, is dynamite. Very revealing of General Scott's extracurricular love life. Any taste of victory we have in our mouths, Colonel, is due in no small measure to your efforts.
Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: The taste I've got in my mouth, Mr. Secretary, is unmentionable.
Christopher Todd: I can understand that feeling, Colonel. But when you deal with a jackal like your general...
Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: Mr. Todd, this is a full Air Force general. Six times wounded, wearing only half the medals he deserves. Whatever else he is, he's no jackal.
Christopher Todd: My god, the sensitivity of our warriors! Did I step on your old school tie, Colonel?
Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: You're just like a lot of civilians, Mr. Todd. After every armistice, you want to put us away in mothballs, like the fleet. When it comes to a little dying...
Christopher Todd: Hold up, Colonel!
Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: ...you'll be sure to put us in a uniform...
Christopher Todd: That's enough, Colonel!
Jafar: Your keen perceptions humble me.
